We have just got back from celebrating my mums 50th over Christmas and New Year at Beavers Croft and it was amazing! The barn is in the most stunning location next to the Howden Dam, with loads of walks available from the doorstep. It was beautiful, comfortable and fully equipped with everything we needed. We spent the majority of the time around that beautiful fire! While there is no phone signal, there is WiFi which worked well for us. The nearest towns are Hathersage and Bamford, within a 10-15 minute drive, where there are pubs and tea rooms. We also went to Bakewell for the day, about half an hour away. Big thanks to Sarah and Steve for making us feel welcome, and also helping us through the snow! A real gem and the perfect spot to get away from it all, would highly recommend!
The barn is lovely and the location is stunning. Lots of great walks and cycle routes with the excellent view points of the dams. Already planning our return visit.
Beavers Croft is a beautiful and very comfortable secluded rental property in a wonderful setting. We had a fantastic time there during our eight nights there and thoroughly relaxed. Very much recommend Beavers Croft to anyone looking to get away from it all, in beautiful scenery and absolute peace! Thank you to Steve and to Sara for everything!
What an amazing home to stay in. It really felt like home too. The scenic drive past Derwent Valley gets you into the mood for a very private setting and it was a breathtaking setting. The house itself was exquisite. The detail that has gone into making this house so homely is second to none. It has everything you need and everything in immaculate condition. Sarah and Steve were very welcoming and friendly. Steve showed us around and made us feel right at home. Shame we had to cut our stay short due to work commitments but would definitely like to go back and explore more of the Peaks from this amazing location.
Visited Beavers Croft with family & friends, we could not believe how beautiful Beavers Croft is and the surrounding area that it's situated in! We feel very lucky to have found such a treasure - it was perfect! We were welcomed by Steve, again what a lovely welcome we got, very helpful & always had time to chat with us. We wish we were back there already, We will definitely be returning & will definitely be recommending Beavers Croft to our friends and family - thank you xx
We had a brilliant long weekend at this wonderful cottage. The cottage is very comforable and in a beautiful setting with stunning scenery. The owner and agent were also excellent and very helpful. My only two comments to make the experience even more enjoyable would be to replace the washing machine with a washer-dryer and use the space that the dryer occupies to install a dishwasher, and to replace the two single beds in one of the downstairs bedroom with a double. But this is a perfect holiday rental and we will definitely be coming back.
We came as a group of 8 on a girls weekend away from our busy lives and what a perfect location! Sunshine on the the tranquil water across the reservoir made some beautiful photographs.
Such a great barn conversion laid out perfectly for us all to eat, drink and be merry together!
Lovely friendly owner.
Don't come here if you can't cope without a phone signal though! (Although there is wifi and a pay phone!)
Come prepared with your groceries too and you'll have a wonderful time! We did manage to get a curry delivered though - just allow plenty of time!
Would love to come again !
